Plot Synopsis

In this 12-episode, half-hour series, British adventurer Steve Backshall embarks on a globe-spanning journey of a lifetime, traveling over 10,000 miles from the Arctic to Antarctica to find deadly places, deadly adventures and deadly animals. Traversing glaciers, jungles, deserts, mountains and oceans, Backshall treks down through North, Central and South America to Antarctica, and along the way, encounters some of the world's most aggressive predators -- from great white sharks and belugas, to Mexican freetail bats and red diamond rattlesnakes. WEIRD, WILD & DEADLY also features Backshall's crew in action as they race to capture the action by chasing animals and experience some heart-pounding escapes. Discovery Family aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at 8pm ET/PT, showing back-to-back episodes.
